Doc Rivers said that Hedo Turkoglu sprained his ankle during Game 3, but he should be fine.
"I didn't know a guy who moved that slow could sprain his ankle," said Rivers of Turkoglu. "It shouldn't slow him down." Through the first three games of the series, Turkoglu has scored a total of two points to go with two rebounds and one steal. There's no fantasy value to be had here. Apr 26 - 2:26 PM

Hedo Turkoglu not only started for Matt Barnes (hamstring) on Wednesday, but racked up a season-high 19 points, two rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers on 7-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes.

Whoa. It's nice to see that Turk can still play and he could have another big game or two if Barnes continues to sit. Turk also started on Tuesday, but scored just six points.
Mar 19 - 1:45 AM

Hedo Turkoglu made a rare start for Matt Barnes (hamstring) on Tuesday, but he scored only six points on a pair of 3-pointers, with two boards, one assist and one block.

Turkoglu also turned the ball over twice in 21 minutes. The Clippers next game comes Wednesday in Sacramento, but there's also a chance that L.A. will shelve Barnes to avoid any setbacks -- Doc Rivers said he's looking into signing another SF, so there's a real chance Turkoglu will get a few more starts.
Mar 18 - 1:23 AM

Hedo Turkoglu will start Tuesday's game in place of Matt Barnes (hamstring).

Turkoglu is shooting 43.2 percent from downtown this season and Doc Rivers likely wants him to spread the court in lieu of Barnes. The 15-year veteran is only worth a look for temporary value in deep leagues.
Mar 17 - 8:54 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (stomach virus) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

He is not at the arena for the game against one of his former teams. Turkoglu has seen his minutes drop recently and only played two minutes on Thursday, so there shouldn't be many tweaks to coach Doc Rivers' rotation.
Feb 6 - 5:47 PM

Clippers sign G/F Hedo Turkoglu.

It's expected to be a one-year deal and it will bring the Clippers to 14 on their roster. Turkoglu wasn't very effective with the team last year, but he could get minutes with the team dumping Jared Dudley's contract.

The Clippers and Hedo Turkoglu are reportedly nearing agreement on a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

Turkoglu hasn't posted an above-average Player Efficiency Rating since the 2007-08 season and he's been particularly dreadful since 2012, but coach Doc Rivers obviously thinks he can bounce back at age 35. He'll fill a small role off the Clippers' bench and fantasy owners are advised to shun him.

Hedo Turkoglu (back) will not play in Game 3 on Friday and updating an earlier report he is targeting a return in Game 5.

Turkoglu's presence is actually somewhat important for a Clippers unit forced to play Jared Dudley and Glen Davis. He suffered a hairline fracture in his back and at his age and mileage he'll be very questionable to suit up.
Fri, May 9, 2014 09:04:00 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised lower back) will miss at least Games 1 and 2 of the Clippers' second-round matchup vs. Portland.

Turkoglu's return date is up in the air and may lead to more playing time for Danny Granger and Jared Dudley, though they combined to play just three minutes in the Clippers' Game 7 victory on Saturday.

Hedo Turkoglu's bruised lower back will sideline him during Game 6 on Thursday.

Turkoglu has given the Clippers a bit of perimeter firepower in under 10 minutes per game during the postseason, and his absence should mean a few extra minutes for Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes. He was expected to have an MRI but the results have not yet been disclosed, so for now we're considering him day-to-day.

Hedo Turkoglu is expected to have an MRI after bruising his lower back during Tuesday's win vs. the Warriors.

Turkoglu has averaged eight minutes per game in the playoffs, making 4-of-10 shots from downtown in a spot-minute role off the bench. His MRI will be performed on Wednesday and the results should be announced prior to Thursday's Game 6 in Oakland.
Wed, Apr 30, 2014 10:01:00 AM

Hedo Turkoglu suffered a lower back contusion during the second half of Tuesday's game and he is doubtful to return.

He was in some pain and needed to be helped to the locker room. The Clippers have gotten a lot more out of Turkoglu than most expected, but he may miss time in the future. He'll likely be re-evaluated on Wednesday.
Wed, Apr 30, 2014 12:36:00 AM

Hedo Turkoglu hit four 3-point shots for 12 points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Pardon us if we don't race to the wire to pick him up, as one look at his game log will tell you. If he can revive his career over a longer stretch we'll let you know. After all, Jared Dudley might be as out of shape as O.J. Mayo these days.

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) was scoreless with seven rebounds, three assists and one block in 12 minutes vs. the Sixers on Sunday.

Turkoglu was a true game-time decision and his knee isn't yet 100 percent recovered. That didn't matter on Sunday, as he was still able to post a +/- rating of +15 without even attempting a shot in the Clippers' romp over the Sixers. We're taking Turkoglu off the injury report, as he should be ready to go on Wednesday.
Mon, Feb 10, 2014 01:00:00 AM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) is listed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Turkoglu hurt himself in the first half of Wednesday's game and the injury kept him out of both Friday's game and Saturday's practice. Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley will each get a handful of extra minutes if Hedo isn't ready to suit up.
